Pen y Dre High School again enjoyed strong school performance in 2023. Our academic results across the performance measures are amongst the highest when compared to modelled outcomes.

Standards of attainment have continued to improve over the last 7 years and in 2023 our capped 9 score was one of the highest the school has ever achieved.

A significant number of our GCSE subjects excelled across the board. For example, over 88% of Year 11 physics pupils were awarded a grade of C or better.  

All pupils now leave Pen y Dre High School with the qualifications needed for the world of work or further education.

Our strong academic and all round school performance has been reflected in previous Welsh Government categorisation as a GREEN A school.

Further information about the school can also be found in our ESTYN inspection report.
